Abstract

Phlebotomus kazeruni (Diptera: Psychodidae) females were collected by light-trap in southern Sinai, Egypt, and this sandfly species was colonized forthe first time as a laboratory strain, maintained by the procedures of Modi & Tesh (1983), Laboratory-reared females did not lay eggs autogenously; they blood-fed more readily (P = 0.02) on a hamster (37%) than a human (22%)during 1 h exposure. Fecundity of hamster-fed females was significantly greater than for those fed on human blood: 69.4 +/- 5.8 vs. 45.2 +/- 8.1 eggs/female from the first gonotrophic cycle. Pre-oviposition and egg incubation periods were significantly less for females fed on hamster compared with human blood, but the larval development and pupation periods were not affected by this difference in bloodmeal source. Egg to adult survival was equivalent (38%) for progeny of females blood-fed on hamster or human. The mean generation time of progeny from females fed on hamster (51.9 +/- 1.0 days) or human (53.3 +/- 1.7 days) was not significantly different. The sex ratioof adult male:female progeny was similar (P = 0.2) for both hosts: 42:58% from hamster, 46:54% from human blood-fed female parents. Evidently P. kazeruni from Sinai is sufficiently anthropophagic to be a potential vector of Leishmania from rodents to humans.
